We just had the most wonderful visit to Cumberland Island. I was so looking forward to seeing the wild horses and I wasn't disappointed. We saw dolphins as we were docking and raccoon everywhere. The horses - including a baby- were right near the dock and another group at Dungeness. We hiked along interior trails to Stewards Beach and got eaten alive. The bug spray we brought with us could not keep up with the ravenous mosquitoes, ticks, and chiggers. I was wishing we'd brought the likely-cancer-causing Deep Woods Off with DEET that we use for backwoods hiking. Stewards Beach was amazing. It's the first time in my life I was ever the only soul on a beach in the middle of the day for as far as the eye could see. It's a 10 mile round trip hike and worth every step. Two kernels of advice - Bring the DEET (and sunscreen) and hike on the hard sand of the beach where, at least on this day, there were NO BUGS!
